Ginger and Coriander Skewered Steaks(BBQ or oven)

 

Prep time:                     15 minutes

Cooking time:           10 minutes

Yields:                               4 people

 

Ingredients: 

8 x 2 oz tenderloin steaks, 1-inch thick
4 green onions
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/3 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons grated onion
2 Tablespoons fresh grated ginger root
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon turmeric
salt, to taste

 

Directions: 

Place 2 steaks side by side on a tray. Push one skewer diagonally through both steaks. Push a second skewer diagonally, in the opposite direction to the first skewer, to secure the 2 steaks together, forming a cross with the 2 skewers. Thread half of a green onion on to the pointed end of each of the skewers. Repeat with remaining steaks, skewers, and green onions. Combine lime juice, olive oil, onion, ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, coriander, turmeric and salt in a bowl. Pour mixture over skewered steaks. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

 

Grilling instructions:

On barbecue, grill over medium-high heat for 3 minutes per side for rare, 4 minutes per side for medium rare, 6 minutes per side for well done.

In oven, preheat broiler. Broil for 3 minutes per side for rare, 4 minutes per side for medium rare, 6 minutes per side for well done.

Skewer and marinate steaks up to 8 hours in advance. Cover and refrigerate. For a complete meal, serve these brochettes with a vegetarian chop suey. It is so easy to stir-fry some vegetables! And for the sauce, simply add the reserved marinade of the brochettes that you will have boiled beforehand. And make sure vegetables remain crispy-they are so much tastier and more nutritious that way!
